Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (CSCR or CSR) occurs in young adults who complain of central blurring of vision. At the early stage, there is a small area of leakage of fluid (or water bubble) underneath the retina at the macula region. In late stages, there can be large amounts of fluid beneath the retina that may damage the retina and lead to irreversible vision loss.

Risk factors

Risk factors for CSR are high stress, Type A personality, use of steroid medication and other hyperdynamic circulatory drugs.


In the past, it was thought that CSR could resolve on its own within 6 months so treatment was delayed while waiting for self-resolution. We know now that treatment is best done early before any inadvertent retinal damage ensues. Treatment options include medication and different types of laser depending on the severity.
